us there. we have had for years of president obama. he has not been able to deliver. we cannot afford four more years. i had my mind made up, but this confirms it. i appreciate the opportunity to see the debate and comment on it. >> thank you very much. next is a telephone call from kevin in a staten island and is also an independent. >> the debate was good, and i enjoyed it. they gave me perspective of both individuals and the path of a mean to take. just like a previous caller said, we do not know what his plan is. it is like "the art of war." if we are going to vote for you, tell me what you are going to do. a good leader informs his soldiers of what they are going to do and how they will go about a plan of attack. you do not to say go into the ravine while meanwhile the enemy is sitting on the planks. that is why obama is telling me what he is going to do, and i have seen what he is going to do. i want a guy that will go after the guy who came after us. 9/11 said a lot. >> thank you, kevin. now we go to steve in the debate hall. >> leon emerson and samantha shepherd both here insi
it and the obama campaign should expect this as well because that's what happens this time of year. in 2007 we were going six months at this stage, or six months into the campaign four years ago at this stage. we were focused on iowa. we believed we had to win iowa to have a shot at the nomination. if we lost, we would have some problems. there was a much more narrow path to the nomination. so everyone was really focused on the four early states, which included new hampshire, south carolina, new hampshire as well. things were really starting to happen in september. starting to see things come together after many months. tuneups for thel collaps race that's 12 weeks away. a car you have on labor day is the car you'll drive through the primary. so you are getting people into positions. it was late september when this poll dropped. it was the same one we had been seeing a couple months, but it showed hillary clinton ahead by 47% to 23% at. it was a cnn poll and she was winning by at least 20 points or maybe 25 points. apple dropped into headquarters like a grenade. there was something that happened in
. i was a 23-year coal miner for many years. barack obama is wanting to do away with coal. i want to see mitt romney come back to my area and talk about call. we have a lot of people down here suffering because barack obama has shut down the coal business. i am a christian voters. i like to take the bible and lay it down and look at it and see which president i would like to vote for. i cannot find anything in the bible that i can vote for for barack obama. he does not have anything i can vote for him more. you turn over to romans chapter 1 and it talks about homosexuality and is an abomination of god. the two exodus' chapter 20 it talks about not killing babies. he is proud of it. there is no way a christian voters can vote for barack obama. host: some of the issues you just discussed were not discussed last night, or they? caller: they have been discussed in the past. i know mitt romney says he is against the homosexuality and will not vote for gay marriage. that is another thing he is against -- do not go in debt. when you become a debtor, you are a slave to whoever you borrowe
conceded that president obama has to be successful in order for you to take back the house this year? -- do you concede that president obama has to be successful in order for you to take back the house this year? >> yes. in 2010, when the republicans won the house, they were up over 70 in the generics. we are now up about four or five in the combined generics. if the president does well, we do well. the president can do very well in states where we can run up the score, new york and illinois and california. he does not add -- i don't think he believes he can win in texas, but we can win more seats in texas. our game plan is built to fit into the environment and we need a lot of success by the president to enhance their chances of getting those 25 seats. >> i will ask a question that will allow you to not come off as a politician and take a stand on an issue that really concerns your constituents right now. i want you to know if you think it is time for a team to go -- if it is time for tim tebow to start planning for the new york jets. >> i can ask you -- i can answer any question you ask a
after taking office president obama said he would fix the economy in three years or face a one-term proposition. today he has broken the promises. his words have no credibility. host: that was the republican weekly address. ralph from the main joins us on the independent line. caller: i was born in 1950, 61 years old. i have gone through all kinds of things. my dad was in the service -- i have had two fathers. i am taking care of my mother now who is just getting one cut back after another through social security. medical benefits. i am not happy. i know what is going on. in the last five years i have taking care of her 24-7. i have had time to educate myself on what it is. until we understand who the enemy is, nothing will change and their plans will continue. there are manufacturing a war because global international banks and their lackeys have bankrupted the world. derivatives are nothing more than leverage. you have a situation where if you look and research it, the city of london which is one square mile in the heart of london which is not even governed by the laws of eng
to ask president obama -- "if you did not turn around the economy within three years, you said in 2009, your presidency would be one term." see: let's jump over and the top question for mitt romney. host: would you like to ask the candidates as we go over the debate. the top story this morning on the front page that we are looking at right now, "middle- class detour." the story looks at local voters, saying that the next american president will be governing a shrinking middle class. people in that income range had a message for the president that transcended political ideology. the percentage of americans that fit into the middle income category was exacerbated in the 2000's as median family income shrunk. in colorado, where it started to raise in 2007, its stubbornly hung around 8% for the last year. it is the slower rate compared to household population overall. other articles look at the impact of the latino vote in colorado. let's hear what you have to say. bob is in new york city on the democratic line. caller: i have two questions for the candidates. why, in this day and age, are
and i am very disappointed in him -- obama four years ago and i am very disappointed in him. >> what made you decide to vote for mitt romney? >> i think he is the only one who could really get us out of this position that we are in. it can go on like this. i am against obama for what he did and taking 4 $5 billion out of our medicare system and putting it into obamacare. >> thank you for your calls. continue to comment if you want you on twitter and c-span.org. both presidential candidates will have campaign appearances tomorrow. we will have live coverage of president obama speaking at george mason university and later on mitt romney will be speaking in virginia. both of those will be live here on c-span. >> we need to tackle our nation ' as challenges. we need to save and strengthen medicare and social security. we're not going to scare seniors. we will save benefits for seniors and for my generation so that these promises are kept. they have laid out -- >> they say that we stole medicare and you have seen the ads and everything. nothing could be further from the truth. >> next thu
of bertran obama, which she did four years ago for john mccain. romney has been joking about the fact that rob portman is very good at what he does and good at making obama -- last week, romney basically admitted to his supporters that portman had really made him angry in the preparations. he felt like throwing him out of the room at times. >> what are they doing amelia after tonight? neatly after tonight? >> romney spent the night in gender, but tomorrow we fly to virginia. he will meet up with paul ryan and have a rally in virginia on thursday night and then swing through florida before returning to virginia, or he is expected to make a foreign policy speech on monday. >> this is certainly -- this is the first social media debate. i am wondering about -- how your yahoo will be involved, live streaming, lots of ways to comment. ways people can comment as it is happening, share clips, create mash-ups of what is going on tonight. how are the campaign's harnessing this, or is it too early, and they will have to see how it plays out? >> both campaigns to put a lot of effort into social m
and spending policies are threatening the financial foundation of our country. every year since barack obama has been president,, the federal government has spent over a trillion dollars packard more than it has taken in. we have a $16 trillion national debt. we are mortgaging the a future of our children. the national debt today totals $50,000 for every man, woman, and child in in america. we can do better and we will be better when we elect mitt romney and paul ryan on november 6. president obama call would have us believe that this is somehow the new bubble. joe biden -- joe biden. there is the gift that keeps on giving. they would have us believe that somehow this is the normal. that this is the best america can be. they would have us be our best days as a nation are behind us. that up -- we don't believe that. we believe the 21st century will be another american century. we believe our best days are yet to come. we know that to do that, we have to have new leadership in washington d.c. and we need mitt romney and we need paul ryan. [applause] hunt i want you guys to go out for these nex
romney? guest: president obama, in his short for years has raised the debt by five trillion dollars. the share of the national debt is $50,000 per person. it is not want to be president obama's generation that will pay it off. it will be myself and fellow students. students are understanding they do not want that. students are supporting iran because he has the plan to ensure when we graduate from college, there is an economy where there is jobs. right now there is not. half recent college graduates are unemployed or underemployed. students go to college to be educated to get a job. i have many friends that are graduating this spring and cannot find jobs, and it is because of the obama economy. host: our lines are open. we do have the mind set aside for those of you that live in ohio. the first call is from cory in columbus. caller: good morning. with president obama instituting more pell grants, what made you think of this as a backdoor draft? students who cannot afford college and of going into the military programs to get an education. guest: well, i think mitt romney in the firs
to be an ideologue for the past few years. obama seemed to be like a team sitting on a lead. i would not have said smog it, i would have just said somebody who did not seem to be terribly hungry for it. -- i would not say smug, just somebody that was not hungry for it. i did not really big in these examples after, i do not particularly care for them. -- these instant polls, i didn't care for them. when you see who did the best job, obama 25, romney 67. obama did better than expected 21%, worse than expected 61%. romney did 82% better than expected, at 10% said they thought he did worse than they expected. my guess is the 10% or partisans. democracy first, a democratic polling firm. romney has a good night, but no evidence of changing the game. i agree with them completely on the first that romney had a good night. i think we will have to see a minute whether it changed the game. walmart sponsored their walmart focus groups with momentum analysis, a democratic polling firm, one of glen's partners together. they suggested a monster lot of walmart moms, it was a win for romney. the people in the grou
the obama administration tried to do that the last four years and we have seen ideas from the ronny administration. romney administration. host: how large a role this manufacturing plant in the u.s.? -- does manufacturing play in the u.s.? guest: a lot of people feel like it is is dying industry in america, but take a look at the numbers. the u.s. still the world's largest manufacturer. manufacturing comprises 11.7% of gross domestic product. manufacturing comprises 9% of total u.s. employment. and it is directly employing 10.9 million workers in the u.s. host: we are going to get into the numbers and look at how things like 9% total employment have changed at the last couple of decades. mr. morath, let me ask about the kinds of manufacturing done. surely that has changed the last couple of decades. guest: we have a fairly robust automotive industry, but there are a number of different areas where things have changed and could change further, such as increasing energy production -- oil, gas, refining. host: this chart is from the bureau of labor statistics, a sister agency, but they
the congressman doesn't like the affordable care act and obama, it extends medicare for eight years. it's a safety net. it's important for our seniors. works for our seniors. we ought not become destroying it. quite frankly, you have not stepped forth with ideas on how to make medicare solvent for the future. >> representative rehberg, 30 minutes. >> you don't extend medicare by taking $716 billion out. he said benefits were not going to cut. that's not the issue, the issue is doctors and hospitals will not be fairly reimbursed for seeing seniors. if president obama and senator tester say you will not lose your insurance under the healthcare reform, no, the problem is nobody will be able to give you that insurance. the doctor may not be able to see you. we must put that back by repealing obamacare. if by putting the money back into medicare, we can make it stronger and last longer and begin serious discussions of a bottom-up solution. >> question from tom to senator tester. >> yes senator tester, you frequently referred to as the only working farmer in the u.s. senate. trade issues by montana far
with obama for four years. now they can say we can tax you for doing nothing. i will give the other party a try. i will let the republicans have this one and see what they can do in a few years. if they suck, my vote will change again. host: interesting call. now we are on the line in pennsylvania with pstill phylis. turn down the tv. caller: hi. host: you are an independent. what are you thinking right now? caller: i will not vote for biden. he sounds crazy, always granting. nothing he says makes sense to me. as far as obama, i watch him. when he went overseas and talk about how we need to apologize for everything we do. and then i heard an interview that he gave with someone when he said that after his mother- in-law had surgery that it would be a good idea if an older person lived on pain pills instead of having their problem taken care of. another thing, and egos around the country and talks, he looks almost like the rabble-rousers' when he goes around the country, it looks almost like a rabble rouser. host: gene is an independent. good morning at. -- jean. caller: i will not vote for
: there is no question -- president obama had a jobs bill last year. the republicans had no use for it. it was put aside because they did not want to have the present have a success. they were not interested in creating jobs. do they have a jobs plan? there is no record that cutting tax creates jobs. i do think the democrats need to be bolder and put forward many more ideas about how to create jobs. in my mind the democratic party is a coalition of interest. the republican party i think will possibly expire because it has become so extremist. it risks extinction in a country going through such demographic shifts. it is primarily a white, older party to that. it doesn't understand how they will operate. they will throw as much money and do the vote suppression which about 11 courts have said we're not going to buy into the idea of bogus voter fraud to impair the greatest rights america has. host: we have 10 students on the bus. all the journalism students are double majors. a quick comment from you as an editor who hires journalists. guest: i think that is a great idea. many journalism schools are going
obama had a jobs bill last year. the republicans had no use for it. it was put aside because they did not want to have the present have a success. they were not interested in creating jobs. do they have a jobs plan? there is no record that cutting tax creates jobs. i do think the democrats need to be bolder and put forward many more ideas about how to create jobs. in my mind the democratic party is a coalition of interest. the republican party i think will possibly expire because it ist.become so extreme as t it risks extinction in a country going through such demographic shifts. it is primarily a white, older party to that. it doesn't understand how they will operate. they will throw as much money and do the vote suppression which about 11 courts have said we're not going to buy into the idea of bogus voter fraud to impair the greatest rights america has. host: we have 10 students on the bus. all the journalism students are double majors. a quick comment from you as an editor who hires journalists. guest: i think that is a great idea. many journalism schools are going through a crisi
about that obama had to brag about in the debate another night. he can't do anything his four years. he's got to go back to the clinton era. the reason the clinton era office is prosperous it wasn't prosperous the first four years of the clinton administration. oh no. it was when the republican congress came in beginning in january of 1995 passing welfare reform, fantastic criminal law provisions, we slipped a tax cut in. that was the republican congress driving the bus and clinton signing what was sent to him. >> a.a. mom writes to you on twitter. it's not about the 60's. it's about the current g.o.p. response to the first black president. total rejection, they say, based race. >> um, the idea that what people don't like about obama is his race is preposterous! more white people voted for obama in 2008 than any democratic president in nearly 40 years. and by the way, where was all this love for blacks in high public positions when clarence thomas wasdom nominated to the supreme court? how about when colin powell was made the first black secretary of state or condoleezza rice the first
obama has to be successful in order for you guys to take back the house this year? >> yes. i concede it. and it is proven. in 2006, when we won the house, the generic, we were up by seven. in 2010, when the republican won the house, we they were up bay over self ren. the generics are largely a function of what is happening at the presidential level. we are now up at four or five. if the president does well, we do well. the president can do well in states where we have to run up a score new york, california, illinois, the president is not going to do well in texas,fore, al pell, i don't i think he believes he can win texas but we'll win two or three seats in texas so we got our own game plan but there is no question about it. the game plan is the kind of built to fit into the environment and we need a good, weaned a lot of success by the president to enhance the chance of getting those 20 seats. congressman, i am going to ask you a question that is going allow you to not come off as a politician and ily to you take a and stand on issue really concerns the constituents now. i want to know
from all president obama four years ago? caller: no, and i agree but that, it also. it is the same song and dance we have had the last four years. looks like we're on to have another four years about. host: what did you think of romney's proposal to bring an aircraft carrier group back to the middle east? caller: it would probably be good for the economy, getting a few people back to work, but as far as driving people away from home again, nah -- host: thank you for calling in. next up is charlotte in georgia on the republican line. what did you think? caller: and so impressed with governor romney. i am so excited to vote for a president that has america plus interests at heart. i believe this man can turn america crown. -- around. [indiscernbile] and knowledge that we are not going to stand for it, this nonsense going on overseas, america needs to wake up and look at this man and vote for romney. host: that was charlotte in georgia. we received several dozen tweets on this issue. i want to read some very quickly. paul says romney will have an unapologetic for policy. he is a leader we
haphazardly, and lot of new initiatives, about and what we have seen in the last 11 years is things have settled down and stabilized and there is more political consensus. look at what the obama administration is doing right now. it's not that different from what the bush administration did throughout its to terms, especially at the end. given that there is that consensus, that is one of the recent national security is not an issue. it's also why some things are a little more litigious in the national security area. >> this will be the last question. >> any predictions for retirement? >> i need it will depend on who the next president is. obviously we have several justices who are getting older, but i think most of them would feel if they were voluntarily retiring and not forced to do so by health concerns or other circumstances, the honorable thing to do is retiring during the term of the party that a plea to do in the first place. you could seek justice ginsburg -- i think she is trying to make a record for how long she is staying on the court. if president obama is there, we may see h
the other months of the year? guest: it absolutely does because we are on a political threshold that president obama has been struggling to get over to the other side. when the headlines and every newspaper reads that we are no longer above 8% unemployment, the political implications are greater than what this means in terms of the economy. host: what are the industries that saw the biggest boost from this? guest: hospitality and warehousing added jobs. we did not see any huge jump up or down and other industries. host: when economists look at the numbers, are we seeing a trend or do we not know yet ? guest: economists generally say this has been a positive trend. the one reason september numbers have been used by economists is that usually when the work force, the size of the work force, increases, that justifies that people are out looking for work and it means that people may be have not given up. that has been the case in the previous month but in september, we saw about the labor market grew a lot of people entered the job market and thought they could find a job now, maybe
this populist appeal. they intend to use -- and this is part of the democratic narrative for years. we are going to help the working guy defeat the flat tax. i think obama said in his interview on reddit that he would pursue a constitutional amendment. he is saying, i will go door-to- door on this and i will make this our rallying cry across the country as a way to get support for my side. you could win people over by that. you could say, these guys are getting taking care of because they used to be -- this election is a little different, but it used to be, just the last two cycles, that was the bipartisan cry, right? that is what john mccain ran on to a large extent in 2008. i will get the powers that be in washington to reject special interest in washington. there is our real interest for one party to take this on and use it as a way of mobilizing. >> at the same time as the bipartisan ground has disappeared, it has become a much bigger issue among democrats. not only on the ground. senator feingold was a little bit -- you know, in many ways, that was a miracle. it was quite a political miracl
. thank you, governor romney and the university of denver. 20 years ago, i became the luckiest man on earth because michelle obama agreed to marry me. i want to wish you happy anniversary and let you know that a year from now, we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. four years ago, we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. millions of jobs were lost. the auto industry was on thethe financial system froze up. because of the resilience and the determination of the american people, we have begun to fight our way back. we have seen five million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come back. housing has begun to rise. we have a lot of work to do. the question here is not where going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skew toward the wealthy, and roll back regulations, we will be better off. i have a different view. we have to invest in education and training. sources of oil in america, change our tax code to help small businesses and companies investing in the united states, that we take s
